A teenage babysitter who persuaded a 13-year-old boy to touch her sexually while she was looking after another child faces jail for the assault.

Mary-Ellen Mooney,18 was watching TV with the young boy when she made a pass at him and encouraged him to touch her private parts.

A judge heard that Mooney, was looking after a child in January this year when the child's friend visited the house and was welcomed in.

As the babysitter sat on the sofa with the 13-year-old visitor, she began making sexual suggestions to him and the pair started 'cuddling'.

Mooney then grabbed the boy's hand and made him touch her private parts, Aylesbury Crown Court heard.

Richard Milne, prosecuting, said: 'It was believed that all this all happened in a period of minute and also involved the pair kissing on the lips.'

Days later, Mooney pursued the boy by sending him Facebook messages that were 'clearly of a sexual nature', Mr Milne added.

After the allegations came to light, members of the victim's family confronted Mooney and attacked her, and were later spoken to by police.

Mooney who later pleaded guilty to all the allegations was told that she has to wear an electronic tag at nights until she is sentenced next month.

Judge Karen Holt said: 'This is a case that clearly passes the custody threshold and, although this is not certain, you must know that you could face a prison sentence following your offences which you have admitted.'
